Even if you break down, you still want power? That’s our philosophy and that’s why it’s easy to stick a Werner Powerhouse four-piece ($230) in the back of your boat.
Whether you forget your blade –like one of Paddling Life’s good buddies did on a recent Cross Mountain adventure – or destroy it against a rock during a backcountry creek mission, piecing the Powerhouse together takes little adjustment. Pick right up where you left off without missing a stroke.
Typical Werner fatties occupy each end – blades ideally balanced for a clean catch, a must for good boofing. The fiberglass straight-shaft is bomber too. You may never need another spare.
PL’s aforementioned “friend,” snapped together the four-piece thunder stick and brought her own ruckus, adjusting the feather during the paddle into the gorge. We’re guessing the power of the Powerhouse saved her day. She was able to surf her usual funspots and boof Pourover City like the plastic goddess she is.
Werner’s Sherpa model is also available in a four-piece. Don’t get caught out without power. The Powerhouse helps you keep your game on.
